In this world of tumult and pathos it is wonderful to take a moment and appreciate the beauty of spring. This exquisite tree is called a Forest Pansy tree. It goes from these gorgeous pink-purple blossoms into deep red leaves that are shaped liked hearts. I love every stage of this process. This tree feeds me each day as I walk around the lake and see it, touch it, appreciate it. Stay tuned for the next stage of this unfolding. And, enjoy!
